This piece is by Mark Schaefer, - if you're not active on Pinterest, after you read this based on actual research, you might want to rethink your strategy.


Here are some highlights from The Social Habit research of American social media users shows some pretty staggering insights. Here are a few highlights:


  • Usage of Pinterest is already nearly as large as LinkedIn with 21% having a Pinterest account versus 26% on LinkedIn
  • More than half of Pinterest users visit the site each day.
  • We could be seeing just the tip of the iceberg for Pinterest’s growth. 38% of U.S. social media users plan to use Pinterest more often
  • 70% of the site’s users are women and 64% of the site’s fans are under the age of 34. In fact, Pinterest is the third-most widely-used social network for women 18-44 (behind Facebook and Twitter).
  • The most popular pins?
